Report: Overeem Sues Former Management for Unspecified Sum; Claims Golden Glory Stiffed Him Over $150,000

(Cor Hemmers and Bas Boon minutes before they eyeballed their share of Alistair’s bag of K-1 purse money, you know, back when he still got it.)

TMZ is reporting that Alistair Overeem filed suit in Los Angeles Superior Court today against Golden Glory — the management team he recently split from that handled his business affairs, not the fight team they are affiliated with.

The complaint states that Bas Boon & Co held back approximately $151,000 US from the former Strikeforce heavyweight champ, including a hefty signing bonus that he got when he upped with the UFC.

An interesting tidbit is that “The Reem” was paying them nearly double what other managers make for their services. Typically, agents take anywhere between 10-20 percent of a fighters purse, but according to court documents, GG skimmed a whopping 35 percent off the top of each of Overeem’s checks before “The Demolition Man” even paid taxes on the sum. There’s a chance that the amount also included the portion paid out to his Golden Glory trainers, but such was not clarified in the papers that were filed today.

He is also asking the court to void the remaining contract he has with the Dutch-based management group. The fact that he has a lucrative fight with Brock Lesnar at UFC 141 on December 30 is likely the main impetus for him filing now, before he has to cut them a check for the bout.

@ThePeoplesTroll-It's no secret that Karma is sensitive and weak minded and thinks he is some kind of contributor around here. i can't help but think that he may be better suited trolling around a site like Sherdog where they get in actual trouble for doing anything but sucking fighters dicks off.

@Karma when someone from CP posts an email address publiclly and u laugh at it because it was someone who was giving you a tough time.. it just makes you seem completely childish like your hiding behind all this and cant take the heat.. not a good way to gain fans. Just don't say anything about it and no one will know it was you who tattled.

I could see the GG guys coming out with some "horsemeat" allegations reaaaaaal soon
NinjaVanish- November 10, 2011 at 3:41 am
the extra money was for all that "horsemeat" that GG had been supplying Alister in the last few years. Ya know, the "horsemeat" that made him so muscular with that oddly reshaped jaw line.

Just for the record, 35% isn't NEARLY double 10-15%, it's MORE THAN double.

Why the fuck would TMZ be reporting on this story? Alistair won'y be famous in the US until he kills his wife and children during a horse meat induced rage.

In truth he didn't ask how much horse meat was per pound.
Anyone else amazed when DW calls shit out and then it happens? Conspiracy theories in 3....2....

To be truthful, it was only 15% in Euros, but that translates to around 35% in dollars.
